Fire safety – Levelling Up Committee inquiry questions safety review authors

23 November 2023

Evidence Session

On Monday, the Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (LUHC) Committee will hold an evidence session as part of its ongoing work on fire and building safety when it questions Paul Morrell OBE, formerly the Government’s Chief Construction Adviser, and Anneliese Day KC, the co-authors of the Independent Review of the Construction Products Testing Regime.

The Review was commissioned by the Government partly in response to the Grenfell Tower fire.

The Committee will question the witnesses on the findings of their Independent Review and on the delay with Government issuing its response to the review.

The Committee is also likely to examine the scope of the regulatory regime, construction product standards, and the testing regime itself. 

As part of this work, the Committee will be questioning a Minister from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities. The date of the Ministerial session will be confirmed in due course.

  • Paul Morrell OBE, Chair of Independent Review of Construction Product Testing Regime (‘Morrell Review’), and chartered quantity surveyor
